Wheaton College (Theater Africana)
I developed a love of teaching and learning from an English teacher for a mother. Throughout high school, I volunteered as a tutor to help students in younger grades. In order to cement a love of teaching, I took part in a year-long Education Internship post obtaining a B.A. in Theater & Africana Studies from Wheaton College, MA. I am incredibly passionate about work ethic and different styles of both learning and teaching.
I specialize in American History, English, Reading, Writing, Study Skills, and Voice. I have not only been tutoring in these subjects since High School, but I have been tutored in most of them as well. As a student who benefited from tutoring, I understand the importance of a well-rounded approach and focus required to retain information.
A goal of mine is to make sure that the student is retaining the information without becoming overwhelmed. Sometimes this can mean working in installments rather than big blocks of time, but this is conditioned by the specific student. Each child works and retains in different ways, and to get the most out of a session, their needs should be catered to.
I will usually assign homework after each session in addition to timely progress assessments as sessions go on. I have experience with the following: Spelling, Study Skills, Various approaches to learning, Handwriting, Essay Workshops, Africana Studies, Years of History Analysis, Study Skills, Extensive Reading, Museum Guide Experience, Years of Vocal Training, Music History, Ethnomusicology Studies, and Piano Training.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Tutoring methods for teaching literature include overview of the novels, flash cards, weekly progress tests reports, and evaluation of character as well as theme.
Experience in teaching/tutoring vocabulary in high school and college. I use flash cards and games to remember the meanings of words.
